Can you tell what media I am using?

I am working on writing a set of artistic filters and thought I would share some preliminary results. I am curious what you guys/gals think. I have been struggling with trying to figure out what makes a pastel image. I think the influence of the canvas and lack of full coverage (unlike oil painting) is part of it, as well as having slightly different colors. Here are two images. One is supposed to look like an oil painting, the other a pastel drawing... can you tell which is which, and are they convincing? Thanks for your input..

I'm not an artist, but to me a pastel color is one that has been desaturated, or in the case of paints, white added.

If you are painting in Photoshop and want pastel colors use the Saturation ramp in the color picker (The "S" of the H/S/B buttons). By default, PS defaults to the H ramp.

Below is a very saturated Blue selected from the H ramp. To the right, the same HUE of blue selected from the lower portion of the Saturation (S) ramp.

Just to clear up some semantic confusion:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pastels

There are pastels, and then there are pastels.

And thanks, PM, for the kind words.

thanks for the clarification

Yep, I am trying to simulate the pastel art media... but, I did do a bit of desaturation and brightening in order to convey some of the "pastel" colors typically used in pastel art...

Very nice picture. Just smoothed it a bit by applying a gaussian blur to a multiply overlay (ofcourse had to adjust the lighting after that), and added a border

This picture is perfect for manipulation.
The second picture I made using the Art Media Pastel tool in PSP 9.

Just playing around with KentC's Cezanne preset again.

Some additional zing too.
